Lygia – Lefkas


Transfer time – 1 Hour

Best for – completely relaxing holidays in beautiful surroundings

Lygia is a fantastic little fishing village situated on the east coast of Lefkas, only 5 kilometres from Lefkas Town. Life in Lygia is totally laid back and completely stress free, always tomorrow is a famous saying often heard in Lefkas!!

Lygia has a couple of pebbly beaches which remain uncrowded, even during high season, gently shelving into crystal clear, turquoise sea. Calm and shallow make it perfect for children and swimming. Should you wish to visit a soft sandy beach, Lefkas Town and Nikiana are two neighbouring resort, both with fabulous beaches and an abundance of water sports. Lefkas has many easily reached coves too, so perfect should you wish for a bit of peace and quiet too.

Lygia village consists of one main street with a few bars, cafés and tavernas, all offering lovingly prepared local produce, especially the local fish restaurants who prepare fresh fish actually caught and brought into the harbour that very day. The harbour also has some beautiful Al fresco tavernas, perfect for sitting over a meal and watching the world go by or watching one of the amazing sunsets over Lefkas.

The surrounding area of Lygia is stunning, with wild flora and fauna on every turn, walk into the nearby mountains, through surrounding olive groves and through the famous cypress trees. Mountain biking is another great way of getting out and visiting nearby towns and villages.

Lefkas Town, 7 kilometres away is a traditional town with many narrow streets of pretty houses,tavernas and small churches, a lovely spot to spend the day and with a great market and plenty shops and stalls, a great place to pick up a bargain.

Boat trips are another popular pastime and a great way of getting out and about and enjoying the local sights. Travel around the island in a day, stopping off at beautiful resorts and villages and have a BBQ on one of the many beautiful coves only reached by boat.

Lefkas and laid back should definitely be next to one another in a dictionary, laid back, relaxed and a perfect destination to recharge those batteries.
